Running matplotlib job with cron

Hi Sandro,

There is no image output when the script is run from cron. I think that is what you are asking.

I thought about updating matplotlib but at this point don't want to change versions unless all else fails. I"m running Mandriva 2008.1 and it's a lot of work.

Is there a more detailed way I can debug to find out where the failure is?

I've written my first python script with matplotlib, which works fine at the
command line but not with cron. It's quite puzzling to me, and probably
involves some path declaration that I don't know about.

I may have read the mail fast, but I can't see any notice about if the
image outputs are different (other than the textual outputs).

matplotlib version 0.91.2

You might also want to update: matplotlib latest release is
